This is a month-long pinball tournament, with unlimited entries. Players can go to the tournament website to register for a free account:

 Once registered, they may use the website to submit "selfies" of their best scores on 5 out of 6 selected machines:

Aerosmith • Attack From Mars • Batman ‘66 •Gilligan’s Island • Spider-Man • Wizard of Oz
(game list subject to change)

 Selfies may be uploaded at any time during the month of May. Selfies must show the score clearly, but do not have to include the player's face.

Players will be awarded points for their scoring: 100 points for the best score on each machine, 90 points for 2nd, 85 points for 3rd, 84 for 4th, 83 for 5th, etc. Players will then be ranked based on total number of points they earn across all 5 games. If you don’t submit a score for a particular game, you get 0 points for that game.

Current standings will be updated on the tournament website throughout the month. At the end of the month, the top  players will be invited to play in the May Finals, which will take place on Wednesday, June 7th, from 7-10 PM.

Finals format:
The top 16 Qualifiers will all be invited to play in the finals. Players who qualify in positions 1-8 will be placed in the "A" division, and play for 1st place through 8th place. Players who qualify in positions 9-16 will be placed in the "B" division, and play for 9th-16th place.
